Hundreds More Illegal Aliens Caught Invading South Texas Over the Weekend


LAREDO, Texas – Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents stopped two alleged human smuggling attempts at the Interstate 35 checkpoint, resulting in the apprehension of over 160 individuals over the weekend.

 The first incident occurred during the evening of Jan. 14, when Laredo North Station agents encountered a tractor-trailer at the primary inspection lanes.  Further inspection of the big rig resulted in agents finding almost 100 illegal aliens.

 The second event was found the following day at the same checkpoint.  Agents found almost 70 illegals inside the tractor-trailer after further inspection.

The apprehended individuals were not wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) when found.  The individuals were provided PPE and were medically screened before being processed accordingly.

In addition, Falfurrias Border Patrol Station (FLF) agents interdicted two migrant smuggling events in tractor trailers at the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint.

On Jan. 17, at approximately 4:00 p.m., a Freightliner truck hauling a trailer arrived at the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint for inspection. The commercial vehicle was referred to the secondary inspection area following a K9 alert.

A search of the trailer revealed six illegal immigrants from Mexico, to include four children between the ages of 8–15 years old, were found laying on the floor between stacked lumber.  The trailer doors were closed and the tarp was strapped down preventing any means of escape in the event of an emergency. Additionally, the temperature inside the cargo area was 123.3 degrees Fahrenheit at the time of encounter. The driver and unlawfully present aliens were placed under arrest and escorted inside the checkpoint.

A few hours later, FLF agents encountered another similar situation. Agents discovered five illegal aliens amongst produce in the trailer cargo area of a blue Kenworth truck. The illegals who are nationals of Central America and Mexico were unable to freely exit the trailer as the doors were latched closed. The United States Citizen driver and Legally Admitted Permanent Resident passenger, along with the illegal immigrants were placed under arrest.

Undocumented immigrants can't vote. Not even republican run investigations have found that they do.

Either way, good job by Biden's Border Patrol!

Undocumented immigrants, you mean illegal aliens. 

So, when the democrats find a way for them to vote, I guess you will be saying IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

No human is "illegal". Republicans just like to put the most negative connotation on things they don't like because their base is mostly reactionary. Just goes to show how little republicans care about other human beings.

Just goes to show how little republicans care about other human beings.

It's not that at all but, unlike you I love my country.

Eric Trump has pleaded the Fifth.  We should not be surprised, since he has learned mendacity and fraud from his father.

Yet if a Democrat did the same thing republicans would be screaming "WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO HIDE"?

Currently hypocrisy is a great word to describe the current Republican Party, along with cowardly, deluded, sycophantic, and whorish.  Over the decades I have likely voted more for Republicans than Democrats, but lately I cannot support their selling of their souls to a truly evil cultish leader who serves only himself.  Stupid is perhaps a poor word to describe his supporters, but ignorant, gullible, and downright foolish might apply.  Supporting this creature may well end democracy as it has functioned quite nicely for quite some time.

To these people:  Be careful what you wish for.

Next time republicans lose will be the true test of how well our system can handle bad actors. January 6th was just a dress rehearsal. Republicans will likely never accept an election they lose again. It's too ingrained into their base. The main point in all of this is that if (and when) republicans are ultimately the ones to actually commit voter fraud and rig an election their base won't care, because they will have been trained to think the last one was "stolen" from them and they are "owed" this win.

It's at 41%. Hilarious republicans have to outright lie to get attention and even attempt to have a point about anything. 

This kind of thing only furthers the proof that republicans do not care about reality or facts.

"No human is "illegal"

What kind of liberal crap is that? Anytime a human commits a crime they are "illegal". Anytime you are someplace you don't live or aren't from then you are an alien. I guess you would prefer Future Americans???

We already know you hate anyone that doesn't think or act exactly like you, we also know you are a liar and I have proven it. 

Also, good to know you also hate the foundation of our legal system, innocent until proven guilty.

Republicans are just full of hate it seems.

CGM5, Wed, 01/19/2022 - 20:30

Well, first of all the Republicans aren't full of hate, they just hate you. Second, I don't lie. You saying you can prove otherwise makes you the liar. You are truly a pathetic person.

ME Someone, Wed, 01/19/2022 - 20:52

You attempted to backtrack a comment based on race you made by saying I edited my comment. I posted a screenshot of my comment when I first made it proving you were lying.

Your a liar, and nothing you can say will get you out of it. Not even your poor attempts at insults, which you only make because you are lashing out since you have lost. 

CGM5, Wed, 01/19/2022 - 23:33

Typical democrat tactic, tell a lie enough times and it becomes the truth.

CGM5, Wed, 01/19/2022 - 22:55

In your screenshot you say (you can tell by the picture why she got off so lightly). When you look at the photo you see she is a blond headed white girl. At that point I called you a racist. It was then you backtracked and said you meant because she was a woman. Well moron the article had already established she was female and so did you. So, why don't you lie some more and try and deny it.

ME Someone, Thu, 01/20/2022 - 12:50

Look at you trying to sidestep the fact you said I edited my comment when I proved I didn't, you are the the one who was proven a liar. You just can't handle that I called you out and proved you wrong can you?

“Innocent until proven guilty”

Haha hypocrite. You mean like those you’ve determined are guilty of insurrection/sedition I wasn’t aware anyone has been found guilty in a court of law of such ;)
